Ashley got her first acting part at the age of three as 'the wee girl in the metal tea urn' in the movie Alabama. At five, she was playing the lead child in a TV ad for Fairy Liquid soap powder - directed by Ken Loach! By 1996, aged ten, she was cast in the lead role of the independent film Wednesday's Child, which received enthusiastic reviews when screened in the British pavilion at the 1997 Cannes Film Festival. Aged eleven, Ashley performed her first ever stand up comedy routine at the International Women's Day celebrations in Glasgow and went on to do stand up in London supporting the likes of Omid Djallili and Donna McPhail - and she appeared on the London Tonight TV show. In 1999, still only thirteen, she wrote, produced and performed her own show What Were You Doing When You Were 13? at the Edinburgh Fringe, becoming the youngest ever stand up in the history of the Festival. She received rave reviews and was guest presenter on the Disney Channel that same year. She was also offered a chance to appear in the Jay Leno chat show on US TV but decided she preferred to go on a school trip to the Lake District! She continued to perform comedy in pubs and clubs around Glasgow and the UK until she took up PR and started her own small business, aged sixteen, at the Edinburgh Fringe… promoting stand up comics and theatre groups.

Carl started performing stand-up regularly in the early part of 2005 and quickly established himself as one of the most exciting new comics climbing the comedy ladder. His confident, conversational style and childish sense of humour has seen him become a regular at clubs all over the country including various universities as part of the Avalon Comedy Network. He won the 2007 Chortle Award for the best newcomer and the 2007 Leicester Mercury Comedian Of The Year Award. 'Carl Donnelly effortlessly intertwines storytelling and observational humour with honed improvised skills' (www.comedy.co.uk) 'A ludicrously funny hour... effortless and utterly captivating' (The Skinny) 'This degree of innate comic talent is a rare and beautiful thing. Not to be missed' (Broadway Baby) 'One of the most engaging and bendy-minded comics on the circuit' (The Guardian) 'He's a remarkable talent – a relaxed, easygoing anecdotalist with an eye for funny details. An hour in his company is a true delight' (Time Out). Carl Donnelly was named in Ents24's top 20 hardest-working comedians of 2016.

With a likeable manner on stage belying some of the stronger content, Nelson often has audiences laughing at things they know they really shouldn’t be laughing at. An MA degree in Politics from Glasgow University supports his brilliantly topical writing and, although his stand-up is certainly not for the easily offended, the material is intelligent, well conceived and beautifully crafted, all supported by a very confident delivery. He is therefore a very sought-after comedian and writer, with both the skill and intellect to be able to adapt his material to suit and entertain any club, theatre or corporate audiences. Prepare to be shocked. 'A star in the making' (The List) 'An unquestionably talented writer and performer... great jokes, and lots of them' (The Daily Telegraph) 'A remarkably accomplished stage presence... blistering material which pushes dangerously near the boundaries of good taste' (The Sunday Times).

Since coming to the UK, the Canadian has built up a reputation as a popular and highly recommended comedian. He is willing to tackle a huge range of topics, from the obscure to the familiar, from a simple gag to quirky, inventive, rambling anecdotes with unexpected punchlines. Even if he occasionally seems to lose sight of where he's going, at least you know he's taking the audience with him. 'Wonderfully imaginative, original and hilarious' (Rhod Gilbert) 'So cool he could well be the answer to global warming. Gloriously funny silly and smart' (The Scotsman) 'Rock 'n' roll comedian. Absolutely boxfresh; nothing is staid about Stade' (Evening Standard) 'One of the best practitioners of stand-up we've got... stand-up elite' (Chortle) “Huge presence...really knows how to work a room...attitude and energy...properly hilarious, thoroughly enjoyable.” (Mirror) 'Every inch a star... super confidence and charisma. If comedy is the new rock 'n' roll, then Tom Stade is Keith Richards' (Scottish Daily Record). Tom Stade was named in Ents24's top 20 hardest-working comedians 2017 and 2016.
